In this extraordinary time, taking care of one another is more important than ever. It is for that
reason that, after careful consideration, ama at The Collective Paper Factory will be
temporarily closed until further notice. The most ethical and important thing we can do is
exercise our responsibility to do everything we can to slow the spread of COVID-19 and
protect our team and community.
The physical and mental health, safety and wellbeing of our members, staff and neighbors
remains our top priority. We are actively monitoring developments and will be guided by the
recommendations of public health authorities to ensure ama is reopened as soon as we can.
The past few weeks have been some of the most challenging for our industry. As a new
restaurant in the neighborhood, we were excited for the opportunity to share our love of food
with you. We are disappointed to close our doors so soon after opening but hospitality is our
passion and we look forward to welcoming you back for delicious food and drink in the very
near future. In the meantime, please do everything in your power to keep yourselves, your
loved ones and your community safe, healthy and connected.
With love,
The ama team
